This is my new favourite juice recipe. I made it a couple weeks ago and deemed it one of the best I've ever made. My juices always turned out awful when I first began juicing several years ago, but now I enjoy plenty o' delicious juicy juices.
Beets are fun to juice because they are so vibrant and crimson. They are potent in antioxidants, and are known as a liver~loving, beautifying vegetable. One of the compounds in beets, betaine, specifically aid the liver in detoxification as it stimulates the removal of toxins by the liver cells. Beets are also naturally rich in nitrates, which improve blood circulation.
I love this recipe because of the addition of two large oranges, which gives the flavour a rich yet citrusy touch.
Beautifying Beet Juice
- chunk of fresh ginger
- leaf of kale
- 1/2 - 1 medium-size beet
- 2 carrots
- 2 navel oranges, peeled
Juice vegetables one at a time, ginger & kale first (so the rest of the ingredients will pull the ginger and kale juice through). Enjoy!
